The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

A vol­cano in south­west­ern Ja­pan has erupted for the first time in six years, spread­ing ash over nearby cities and towns.

Ja­panese broad­caster TBS showed ele­men­tary school stu­dents wear­ing hel­mets and masks on the way to their school at the foot of the Shin­moedake vol­cano yes­ter­day.

Res­i­dents also de­scribed hear­ing rum­bles from the vol­cano, which started erupt­ing on Wed­nes­day, and ash fell in at least four cities and towns in Miyazaki pre­fec­ture.
